the u.s. not necessarily people but the education for producing. >> now, you see, i disagree with that. the skills are here americans can make these products. they can make them as good and better earn anybody in the entire world. we have a great skilled workforce. if they are not teaching some of those skills here, that's easy to fix. and way back in the days when i used to work with jerry brown, we talked about finding the skills that companies need for their special products, you know, computers or iphones or wind turbins or solar panels or whatever and making sure to be teaching those skills in our community colleges and vocational schools. you have to marry the two. but clearly, with that, americans can certainly do those jobs. but that's just one little point of difference here i think this is great news. let us know what you think about it 866-55-press. i will be damn honest with you. as a liberal and saz a progressive, i have been really feeling guilty about all of my apple stuff. i bought two ipads at christmas last year, one for each of our s

problems in the u.s.? not exactly. in at least seven u.s. states constitutional provisions are in place that bar atheists from public office and arkansas has a law that bars an atheist from testifying as a witness at a trial. of course, those laws are unconstitutional, and the supreme court ruled back on it on 1961, but those states don't give a damn. they're not interested. in kentucky the department of homeland security said that you must acknowledge that god protects us. if you don't then you got trouble. god help us all. ironic. kentucky would approve. when we come back, homeland--speaking of homeland security. is it realistic? we've got a c.i.a. agent to talk about it. >> are you presently in alabama? >> no, do you intend to answer truthfully here today? do you intend to answer truthfully here today? >> yes. >> all right, here is our former c.i.a. agent. she'll tell us what is realistic and what is not and especially the polygraph test. i'm interested in that when we come back.

and that assad will be held accountable. u.s. officials are reporting that syria has ordered military chemical corps to be prepared. now syrian state television claims the country has no plans of using chemical weapons, no matter the circumstances. but the u.s. is worried that syrians are getting ready to put together a nerve gas mixture and that that could be used in artillery shells. the state department called any use of chemical weapons a hard red line and said they are continuing to monitor the situation. meanwhile, iran is claiming it's captured a u.s. drone flying over the persian gulf today. according to internationally-recognized limits, those drones must stay at least 12 nautical miles off the coast. but a u.s. defense official is telling cnn that the u.s. navy has fully accounted for all of its vehicles in the middle east. whatever iranians are claiming to have, it is not an actively operating drone. >> think progress is reporting that police can record video inside your home without a warrant. that ruling ca

. today the brady campaign to prevent gun violence held a press conference in front of the u.s. capitol featuring families whose lives have been affected by gun violence in an effort to make the emotional case for gun control. one of the speakers was a father whose son was in the hallway of sandy hook when the shooting began and was fortunately saved by heroic teacher. >> i'm andre i'm father of bear nikachuk, my son miraculously survived the shooting. every time something like columbine, virginia tech or aurora are happening i would avert my eyes and i will still think something will be done. but all those beliefs were shattered on friday. let's stop these partisan division. it is not a partisan issue. it is an issue of safety of our children. >> eliot: echoing that powerful sentiment in an op-ed today, representative sheila jackson lee wrote that congress needs to pass stricter gun laws immediately, writing and i quote... >> eliot: for more, i'm joined by congresswoman sheila jackson lee, democrat of texas. th

: findings make three things absolutely clear about the deadly september 11th attack on the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi, libya, that left four americans dead. one, conservative conspiracies alleging a cover-up are pure fiction. two, diplomatic security funding provided by congress was grossly inadequate and three there is no evidence to suggest that u.n. ambassador susan rice did anything at all wrong. joining me now to discuss the real challenges of foreign diplomacy is the ever wise p.j. crowley, professor at george washington university and a former assistant secretary of state for public affairs for president obama. sir, you have watched -- the hearings today in congress where senator kerry presided over report. seemed a little bit like a dog and pony show where you know, fingers were being pointed everywhere but where they should be. am i wrong about that? >> there's a lot of responsibility to go around. obviously there were miscalculations made within the state department. they did not see the level of t

telling us gun proliferation in america makes us safer. welcome to the u.s.a. where of some you will find it's easier to buy a weapon designed to kill a lot of people in a short amount of time than it is to marry who you love or vote where you want or send your kids to kindergarten. we now live in a society where the aurora, colorado, shooter could buy 6,000 rounds of ammo online and tommy chung went to jail for selling bombs. it is painfully obvious... we need change in this country! and the good news, the majority of americans and the majority of gun owners agree. in fact, a new ppp poll finds that the majority of americans and the majority of gun owners support banning assault weapons and closing the gun show loophole. but the nra opposes both of those measures and in the past, the nra has successfully fought gun control legislation by threatening to attack any politician who doesn't take their hard line. even after last year's tragic gabby giffords shooting, gun control introduced by chuck schumer and carolyn mcc
